Black Swamp campground

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

This small and secluded camping spot is perfect for adventurous campers who love the opportunity to experience the remote and wild regions. Black Swamp campground, accessed via Aeroplane Hill walking track or Careys Peak walking track, is perched on the edge of a unique sub-alpine wetland, providing habitat for many unique plants and wildlife.

The swamps of the high plateau of Barrington Tops National Park have been declared an endangered ecological community and protect many threatened species including the broad-toothed rat and the glandular frog.

After a day of walking the trails of the high country, cook up a hearty meal, and enjoy a night in the pristine wilderness with the light of the stars and moon above. As you drift off to sleep, you might hear the call of the powerful owl ringing through the snowgums into your dreams.
